  • Hello. I’m Shijun Naour, the China Programs Coordinator for North Carolina Center for International Understanding, we are a University program in North Carolina, where I serve as the educational liaison between China and North Carolina.  We have made great progress in building school-to-school partnerships with China, and we are beginning to build Chinese language programs for primary and secondary schools.
